Moisture Bomb: Flood Your Skin with Hydration This WinterJanuary 10, 2017
Over the course of a day—a week or a month—there are a number of factors that can take a serious toll on our skin. Everything from stress, lack of sleep, pollution, and (of course) UV rays, can all lead to skin concerns like dryness, dullness, signs of fatigue, and more visible wrinkles and fine lines. One of the best ways to combat these external (and internal) aggressors is with a well-rounded skin care routine that includes cleansing, moisturizing, and wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen. While these tips are drilled into our minds time and time again, all too often the final steps of this basic 3-part skin care routine are skipped, leaving the skin susceptible to UV damage, dryness, and premature signs of skin aging.
Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer
During the winter months in particular, many of us think it’s okay to skip sunscreen or perhaps aren’t reaching for moisturizer twice daily—and boy, are many of us wrong! Cleansing alone just isn’t enough if you want great-looking skin all year round. You simply must moisturize! Our favorite way to moisturize? Reaching for products formulated with hyaluronic acid. This potent humectant has the ability to attract and hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, making it your new BFF when your skin lacks moisture. Two of our favorite new moisturizing products from Garnier that have been formulated with hyaluronic acid are the Moisture Bomb Antioxidant Super Moisturizers.

Garnier Moisture Bomb
If you’re looking for a new daytime moisturizer that is formulated with both antioxidants and broad-spectrum SPF, look no further than the Moisture Bomb with sunscreen. This antioxidant super moisturizer is formulated with goji berry, vitamins C and E, pomegranate, and hyaluronic acid—as well as SPF 30—to help not only hydrate the skin but also protect it from daily aggressors, resulting in healthier-looking skin over time. The water-light lotion floods the skin with all-day weightless moisture without any greasy residue and protects the skin from the sun’s harsh UV rays. Skin feels softer and smoother and your moisture barrier is protected and preserved. During the particularly dry winter you may find you need additional moisture and that’s where Moisture Bomb without sunscreen comes in!
During the daytime you can layer Moisture Bomb sans sunscreen over the Moisture Bomb with SPF for a more hydrated skin feel. Just like its protective counterpart, the Moisture Bomb Antioxidant Super Moisturizer without sunscreen floods the skin with long-lasting hydration for softer, healthier-looking skin. The water-like gel-cream is also formulated with hyaluronic acid and antioxidant-rich goji berry, vitamins C and E, and pomegranate. The lightweight moisturizer helps to plump out dry lines and strengthen the moisture barrier to end the cycle of dry skin. After cleansing day and night, gently massage this gel-cream onto skin for long-lasting hydration. Over time you may even notice reduced appearance of fine lines.
